Broth Bitch is a podcast performance work about the wellness industrial complex and white women, set against conversations about women, labour and capitalism.
Michele Lee is an Asian-Australian playwright and theatre maker working across stage, live art, audio and screen. Her work is largely narrative-focused, in comedy and drama, and explores stories of women, work, otherness and found families.
Collaborating with an acclaimed team of Melbourne-based theatre makers, while all are in Melbourne’s lockdown, Michele and her co-creators are using the format of a multi-episodic podcast to make this new satirical work for presentation in late 2020 at Melbourne Fringe.
